5 People Dead in Shooting at Capital Gazette in Annapolis
NBC Washington ^ | 28 June 2018 | NBC Washington [DC] Staff

Five people have died and several others are hurt after a shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper building in Annapolis, Maryland, local and federal officials say.

The names of the dead were not released immediately. The suspected shooter is in custody, and authorities are questioning him, officials said at a news conference Thursday afternoon.

"I don't know what to say other than our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families, and we take comfort knowing that they are in God's embrace," Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh said.

Injured victims are being treated at R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma in Baltimore and Anne Arundel Medical Center, the county executive said. Several are "gravely injured," Schuh said.

The shooter opened fire at 888 Bestgate Road, and the call for an active shooter came in at 2:34 p.m, Capt. Russell Davies with the Anne Arundel EMS confirmed to NBC News.

First responders arrived within 60 seconds, Gov. Larry Hogan said.

Democrat whose inflated sense of self worth and bone deep sense of entitlement aided him to decide to punish the people who he blamed for his being a loser?

Well the give away is what they’re not saying of course! Since they aren’t claiming it was a “right-wing” nut, then it’s a left-wing one...guaran-damn-tee you!

This is a personal issue. I bet this is some kind of scorned lover type of thing. Just a guess.

first responders were on the scene when the shooting started... they were not able to respond in kind, because maryland law prohibits concealed carry.

police are not first responders... victims are.

Workplace shootings are usually disgruntled employees, or recent employees who were fired and came back to get even with someone or multiple someones.

Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D) wrote on Twitter, “My heart is with the families, friends, and loved ones of the victims as we learn more about this terrible situation. We must unite to end the violence.”

It's been YOUR party stoking the flames of violence!

The main thing the press wanted to know is what kind of gun he used.
